David Shepherd Art

David Shepherd CBE FRSA 1931 – 2017

David studied art under professional artist, Robin Goodwin, with early commissions for the RAF taking him to Aden in 1960, and on to Kenya. This trip changed his life. He was asked to paint his first wildlife subject and at the same time, he became a conservationist overnight when he witnessed 255 zebra dead around a waterhole poisoned by poachers.

For 60 years David dedicated his life to protecting some of the world’s most iconic and endangered animals. The foundation lives on in his memory – to read more about David Shepherd click here.

Little Jumbo

Little Jumbo is now being sold as part of a private estate. Details have been provided by their son, Andrew:
“My father was an RAF pilot in Aden in the mid 60s. During this period my mother and father became friendly with David whom they met at RAF Khormaksar whilst he was there in the capacity of an Aviation Artist. They all met again later in Nairobi and Mombasa.
When they returned to the UK in 1976, my mother asked David for a painting. The result being a beautiful and finely detailed painting in oils, which David referred to as his ‘Little Jumbo’.
It remained my mother’s most prized and loved possession for over 40 years”.

Inquisitive Tiger in the Forest

This fabulous, large tiger image was painted in 1988 and is perhaps one of David’s best paintings, capturing the powerful yet mesmerising fascination of the secretive life of a tiger.
The current owner bought this original at the Summer Olympia Art Fair in 2008. It was an impromptu purchase as he was leaving for the day. He said: “The painting spoke to me and I had to have it!”.
It is beautifully presented in an ornate gold frame.
Framed: 106 x 76cm

Granny's Kitchen

David said that he always found inspiration in painting scenes of the Victorian period – glistening pots and pans, an old range, and the wealth of colour to be found in the rich greens of cabbage and asparagus, the orange of carrots, and all the paraphernalia of Mrs Beaton heaped upon an old pine table. This painting was also inspired by the TV series 'Upstairs, Downstairs'. David actually engaged a TV set designer to install a complete Victorian kitchen in his garage – of which only a tiny portion is in the painting! The little girl is David and Avril’s eldest grandchild who is now 32 years old!
